Since we lived in King County years ago, I have been keeping tabs on what is happening there. We don’t get to visit our old community as often as we should, but it doesn’t mean that we don’t care about it.
Quite the opposite – we care about it a lot.
Over the last few years, I have watched how King County has really embraced technology to make itself more accessible to residents. Many counties have failed to integrate technology properly when it comes to the services provided to their rate payers, but King County has been able to make everything work properly. In fact, the King County Assessor’s Office has done this in recent years with their assessment appeals process – the use of their online service consisted of more than half of the appeals made to the office in the second year of operation.
It was definitely a success.
The man behind the progress in Kind County for the last few years has been Lloyd Hara, and hopefully the constituents are smart enough to Re-Elect Lloyd Hara for King County Assessor. He puts the county first and I look forward to seeing how he can continue to move the Assessor office forward as we continue through the 21st century.
